Another Baby Card

Well I did say I loved these Stamps.  I have included a piccie of these stamps on this post and I ordered mine from 'Capture the Magic' excellent service from these guys they arrived in a flash, as I am not the most patient when I have wanted them for ever...........I was really happy!  They came on an A4 poly sheet all ready to whole punch and pop in my folder so double fab!  Did this card last night and I was so pleased with it, it's one of my all time favourites!!  I used a patchwork idea that I have used before but this time instead of using all squares (punched using HobbyCraft punch, various papers) I did some pieces that are double size of the square and added these in. I can't take the credit for this idea as I've seen it several times before, but I love the effect.  I then did various doodle stitches, used my baby vest stamp (again!!) on some patterned paper from a 'Paper Cellar' paper pad, cut out and placed this with foam pads on a punched black circle. Doodled white dots and a white ribbon and sentiment and Voila.......!
The second thing to show is the first attempt at using my Bind It All.  I did this a few months ago and again the BIA was a must have purchase for me, I do love it, but I am very naughty and haven't used it since.  Mental note...........again blow off the cobwebs and get cracking with the BIA nowwwww!!!  Used K and Co paper pad Hannah Stamp and Papermania flower.
One last piccie on an older post I mentioned some fab paper in various colour palettes from a local value store here is the red colour way and so cheap under a pound, double sided and white core.  I use them often as a paper pierced border, I used the beige this way on my other vest card on my last post with white gel pen stitches to good effect I think!
